Precinct Study, University of Nevada, Reno
Along with designing the new Joe Crowley Student Union, WTW and our local partner Lundahl & Associates also planned extensive outdoor program, gathering, and circulation amenities to take advantage of the southwestern climate. The resulting design integrates the Student Union and neighboring buildings into a comprehensive Precinct Plan.
Positioned at the crossroads of campus axes and the newly relocated campus entrance, the enhanced design of this precinct fulfills numerous master plan objectives. It is strategically located to provide the arrival point to the University while serving as the focus of the north-south campus. It also acts as the springboard for planned expansion to the east, completing a synergistic hub of campus activity and student life.
